An Important Message Regarding the Coronavirus

The Steven R. Neff Funeral Home understands the severity and the risk involved with the Coronavirus. As a public entity we want to inform you that we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure that we reduce your risk to exposure while in attendance at our facility. We are monitoring all communications distributed by the Center for Disease Control and the National Funeral Directors Association as well as our local and state health agencies in regard to all information on the Coronavirus (Covid-19).  To ensure that your risk is minimized while attending an event at our facility we have put the following emergency plan into place: 


1. Our staff will make environmental cleaning procedures top priority at our facilities. All door handles, knobs, faucets, toilets, water fountains, as well as any surfaces that come into human contact will be diligently cleaned with an antibacterial agent. Staff will be present to open and close doors outside doors for you so you won’t have to touch the doorknob.

2. Hot beverage service to the public will be suspended during this time to limit exposure. Individual water bottles will be available by request (for as long as water bottle are available to us).

3. Personal space zone (distance of 6 ft.) will be created between visitors and family members of the deceased to keep from spreading of the virus by personal contact.  At this time CDC guidance states “There is currently no known risk associated with being in the same room at a funeral or visitation service with the body of someone who died of Covid-19”, however the CDC also recommends not touching the body of someone who has died from Covid-19.

4. As per recommendation of the CDC, there will not be allowed any more than 10 persons in the facility at one time.  Our directing staff will present several options to your family in regard to keeping you safe and still allowing you to have some type of a service. These are unprecedented times so we promise to be reasonable and flexible.

5. Hand sanitizer and Kleenex will be available. Information will be available on how to stop the spread of Coronavirus.

6. Systems will be put into place to give the general public an opportunity to come, honor, and pay their respects in a less crowded environment.  

7. We respectfully ask that, for your safety as well as others, if anyone is ill or has symptoms of even a common cold; please refrain from coming to the funeral home or attending any service.


Honoring and remembering a life are what we are all about. Public health and safety are first and foremost in our minds during this time. We have devised this emergency plan for your protection, but we advise that if you have any concerns or apprehension about attending our facility, please stay safe at home. As always please contact us with any concerns.  Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate through this uncertain time together.
